, i want to go back to what joe said earlier. the big story of this election is president obama won and won not just in a race that everyone said was going to be razor thin, it would be super close, he ends up winning with 52% of the vote we now know one of only five presidents in history who has won more than 51% in two successful elections. >> and it's not even close when it comes to the swing states. >> correct. >> nine, ten, 11 swing states for a year and a half. at the end of the day it was no close. >> and no one could predict it? >> one that portends a lot for the future of american politics with this coalition of the ascendant that elected him, college educated americans. this is what the future looks like and his victory showed it. on the other side, beyond his victory was, of course, mitt romney's loss and there's probably no single moment that signified everything that was problematic with romney's candidacy more than the 47% video. he had been painted by his own 0 words and by president obama's team as a heartless, out of touch democrat and it made it difficult to be suc
obama sought re-election in a campaign where we finally got the sophisticated adult political debate we've longed for. >> it would be obama-alamy. >> it's called romnesia. >> i love big bird. >> thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on big bird. >> it was an epic battle of the world views. president obama launch 1,000 republican campaign posters when he said -- >> you didn't build that. >> and true to his word, romney created new jobs, these in the democratic t-shirt and bumper sticker business when a closed. door chat went public. >> 47% of the people who vote for the president -- >> and while all this was going on, joe biden was just generally enjoying himself. >> i always say what i mean. >> in the end, neither a dominant first debate -- >> i have no idea what you're talking about. >> nor a virtuoso convention performance by clint eastwood. >> what do you want me to tell romney? can't do that to himself. >> nor this -- could carry mitt romney past the president. so very close to the oval office, romney now mostly hangs out at disney world. leaving the national stage along
's tone. speaker boehner responded by saying this. americans elected president obama to lead, not to cast blame. the president's comments today are ironic, as a recurring theme of our negotiations was his unwillingness to agree to anything that would require him to stand up to his own party. the president, of course, saying he has offered concessions. he's offered over $1 trillion in additional spending cuts. what am i missing here? because it seems like he's up against a wall. >> yeah, some of those cuts, though, are kind of already were on the table. there were cuts, for example, in defense spending, you know, because we're not at war anymore. we're not necessarily -- you know, those trillion dollars are a little bit suspect for a lot of republicans. and i think ultimately the president is sitting there very, i think, disingenuously, you know, touting what he was able to do when he left on the table, quite frankly, mika, the one thing that could have been the real solution, the real framework to avoid all this, which was simpson-bowles. i'd still get back to that reality that this presi
, but there is no substance of an agreement. >> what we have are on the obama side, you have an election that pretty much took a mandate, if you will where the very issue of taxes was legislated and the americans said they agreed with the president saying that taxes rise for the wealthy and the right wing and the republican party who won by a wide margin in deeply conservative areas. they have a mandate. they are cancelling each other out. they each think they are -- that is why we are frozen. i don't know if it's been that way. the mechanics have been such that they are polarized to the point where it's paralyzing. >> the thing that baffles me and it sort of angers me is the conservative republicans, the president's vote in state after state in the electoral college. it used to be in politics if it was more respect for the voter and the voter speak today, one of the big things they seem to speak out on was this idea that raised taxes on people making $1 million or more. we are at a stand still on that. your sense of things in the house especially. the lack of respect for the voter, this idea that we have thi
. since the president's re-election, he and republicans have traded offers and counteroffers, finding little common ground on tax increases and cuts from entitlements. president obama and speaker boehner met one on one. nothing happened. the speaker offered plan "b," never got enough support within his own party. here we are all over again. do we have tom coburn? joining us now from capitol hill, republican senator from oklahoma, senator tom coburn. senator, thanks for being with us. >> you're welcome. >> so, why, first of all, does this deadline tonight matter? and i heard you make comments yesterday out on the streets of washington to a reporter that you think we're going to go over the cliff? >> i do. >> okay. >> i do. let me take issue with a couple of things you said. >> okay. >> number one is we haven't cut the first penny yet from the federal government, and it's important people know that. what happened in that agreement is $1 trillion in increased expenditures didn't happen. >> okay. >> all right? and now that we're down to the hard work of actually trimming some of the waste
